A five-week summer seminar for fifteen school teachers on the history and culture of the American Great Plains.

This five-week seminar will provide fifteen teacher-participants, along with the seminar director, the opportunity to study in depth four great texts of the Great Plains experience. Two texts--by Walter P. Webb and Willa Cather--represent the First Generation of Great Plains regionalism, which sought cultural autonomy for the region in an increasingly metropolitan nation. Two texts--by N. Scott Momaday and Wallace Stegner--represent the Second Generation of Great Plains regionalism, which sought personal identity in the Great Plains experience. The seminar is to be directed by a historian who specializes in regional studies. The seminar will convene at North Dakota State University, a land-grant university of the northern plains.
